Julia Fisher talks to David & Leah Ortiz – Welcome to this week’s edition of The Olive Tree which finds us in BeerSheva in southern Israel talking to David and Leah Ortiz. They live in Ariel in central Israel and, as you will hear, work among both Jewish and Muslim people. A few years ago one of their sons, Ami, was seriously injured when a religious Jewish man left a bomb on their doorstep. Theirs is an unusual and very interesting story – so where did it all begin?
Our aim is to build bridges… To build bridges of understanding and support, in a spirit of reconciliation, between believers (both Jewish and Arab) in the Holy Land (Israel and the Palestinian Areas) and Christians worldwide.
